that window was big enough and right in time for the shuttle to take off today. >> chad, same kind of rules apply, weather standards for the landing that's coming in 12 days? >> a little bit even -- i would say a little bit more conditional on the rain factor because it's a bigger circle. right now all we had to do was shoot this thing straight up. when we land this thing it has to be very dry. you can't have showers around it. think of a dry day in florida in the summertime. you have to go up edwards, one time to white sands but you cannot fly the shuttle because it's screaming hot. thousands of degrees, you can't bly that through a rain shower. the criteria more tense, harder to get through to land this thing back here at kennedy, but they have a big time -- they're going to have a big-time party when this thing finally does come back here. >> chad myers, appreciate that breakdown. good to see you, as always. thanks to our john zarrella. eight minutes past the hour. >>> sound effect is the u.s. labor market sputtering to a virtual standstill. as you know by now, the economy added just 18,

and then this dip now? >> e.d., you talk to some analysts and they say, you know what, we had some really big shocks to the economy, to an economy that's already in trouble. first we had that ripple effect from the earthquake and tsunami in japan. that really hit manufacturers and automakers really hard and stopped production in its tracks. that's one effect and one reason we're seeing such low numbers. another reason, these higher oil prices we've been dealing with. they jacked up gas prices, so consumers pulled back on spending on other discretionary items. now, that doesn't help to give companies any extra confidence to hire when they see that nobody is, let's say, walking into their store to buy things. also these high oil prices cut into company's profit margins because for them it costs more to produce these products and distribute these products. these companies, you know, just overall, they aren't hiring. in the economy itself there is just a lot of uncertainty. if the economy would be on solid footing, then they'll hire but we're just not there. and of course amplifying this whole situation

that of the assistant attorney general for the antitrust christine varney is stepping down and there's a big merger in the at&t t-mobile merger that needs a thorough and expeditious review, and i would hope that her stepping down doesn't believe that. i think we could get that done by the end of the year in a fare, faeroe manor. but i have been in a dialogue with chairman genachowski about making sure that we move as quickly as we can on the merger review process as there are a lot of problems with how the commission under both republicans and democrats have conducted themselves in terms of taking too long or imposing conditions that have absolutely nothing to do with the substance of the merger itself. so congress could look at it and there could be a statutory provision certainly, but the best thing to do would be to honor its own 180 dÉjÀ clock. >> just to add something we from time to time work with the fcc on the merger views and from our perspective, you don't deserve a particular outcome, but to do preserve a sort of speedy resolution. sometimes it takes longer with documents but that's wh

and dime the people who need it most but when it comes to war, there's a big, fat blank check. we need to be honest with ourselves. we need to be honest with each other. across the country, the americans, hard working, tax paying citizens who oppose war. they oppose their hard earned dollars being sent overseas to support 10 long years of war. but let me be clear. they do not oppose paying their taxes. they are not anarchists rr anti-government activists. but as conscientious objectors to war these americans want their taxes invested here at home. think want to provide food for the homeless, pave roads and strong schools. they want medicare and social security to exist for their parents, their children and their grandchildren. they want their tax dollars to care for soldiers and their families when they return home. they will see an end and cure to cancer. they want a cure for aids. they want to see small business thrive. and innovation become the en-in of our economy. they want high speed rail like in asia. they want transit systems that are safe and get people where they knead to go.

scheduled the next big meeting with congressional leaders for sunday, just three days from now, scott. >> pelley: nancy, even if a deal is reached, it would take a couple of weeks to get a bill through the legislative process. are they already getting close to missing this deadline? >> reporter: oh, they absolutely are, scott. and that's why i think the understanding here on capitol hill is that if they can't come up with a deal in the next week or so, they're going to have to start crafting a short-term measure to avert a debt crisis for a couple of days or weeks as they continue to negotiate. it's a tactic that they used a few months ago when they were trying to avoid a government shutdown. >> pelley: and, chip, at the white house, is the white house insisting on cuts in social security? >> reporter: no, they are not, scott? the white house says social security is on the table for discussion simply because everything has to be on the table for discussion, but they are not pushing hard for cuts in social security as part of this deal. >> pelley: thank you both very much. you know, th

medicaid. but billions, billions in tax breaks for big oil companies, they all stay on the books. they don't even touch any of the tax breaks for big oil, for big gas, for big coal. tax loopholes that help keep companies offshoring jobs, those were too important to cut as well. the republican plan is about misplaced priorities, and we see it in full display here once again today in this bill on the house floor. when it comes to nuclear power, the republicans want to spend more taxpayer money after fukushima. when it comes to coal, republicans want to spend more taxpayer money. this bill even keeps alive the deep-water drilling program ensuring that millions in tax breaks continue to be wasted on developing oil-drilling technologies that rich oil companies already have and can afford to pay for themselves by tipping american consumers upside down at the pump every time they go to refill their gas tanks. they don't need taxpayer money to do this. the last in line should be oil companies. they're first in line. they're first in line under the republican agenda. now, when it comes to clean ene

medicare while preserving tax subsidies for big oil, tax subsidies for corporate jets and continues wasteful defense programs, in fact, actually increases the defense budget when we know we have more defense than we can afford in this country? why is wasteful spending prioritized over health care for our seniors, the education of our children and investments under this bill that keep our air and water supply clean and healthy reducing health care costs in the long run? now, again, when we talk about these appropriations bills, it's not a debate over whether we should cut the deficit. i think republicans and democrats agree that we need to cut the deficit. the debate about how we restore fiscal discipline that has been abandoned over the last decade. let's have that debate here in the u.s. house and i'm glad that this rule allows us to d it under this bill and i hope we'll make some major changes to this bill. unfortunately, the energy and water bill presented before the house under this rule exemplifies a reckless and ideological approach to the budget. this bill actually increases
